PAST EVENT: Locally-Led Peacebuilding – The IFIT Brain Trust Model
The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) is pleased to announce Locally-Led Peacebuilding: The IFIT Brain Trust Model, the first online event to be held as part of our new 10 Peacebuilding Innovations series.
This event brings together three recognised local leaders from Nigeria, Syria, and Venezuela who will share their first-hand lessons in bridging elite and community-level processes of dialogue and peacebuilding. The event will include discussion of the critical – but often overlooked – role played by local go-between peacebuilders who “lead from the middle”.
Date: Thursday, July 28 at 4pm Barcelona time
